About Queen’s University

Queen’s University is a community with limestone buildings, more than 175 years of tradition, research, a beautiful waterfront campus and academic excellence. But more than anything, Queen’s is its people. We are researchers, scholars, artists, professors and students with an ambitious spirit who want to develop ideas that can make a difference in the world. People who imagine what the future could be and work together to realize it.

Established by the Royal Charter of Queen Victoria in 1841, Queen’s is one of Canada’s oldest degree‑granting institutions. The university’s governance is modeled after the University of Edinburgh, Scotland.

Located on Lake Ontario, steps from the waterfront and downtown Kingston, our campus offers the perfect blend of leading-edge facilities and small‑town comfort.
